    Hachette Book Group scrapped “Apropos of Nothing,” which was scheduled to come out next month, after Allen’s estranged son, Ronan Farrow, blasted the publisher on Twitter and dozens of employees staged a walkout Thursday. He has been a vocal supporter of his sister, Dylan, who has accused Allen of molesting her as a child. “The Hachette decision to drop the Woody Allen book makes me very uneasy. It’s not him; I don’t give a damn about Mr. Allen. It’s who gets muzzled next that worries me,” King tweeted Friday evening. “Once you start, the next one is always easier,” he...

    In an interview with The Financial Times, journalist Ronan Farrow claimed his relationship with former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton cooled during his investigation of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for The New Yorker magazine in 2017. Farrow had served as a youth adviser to Clinton from 2011 to 2012, when she was secretary of state. n the interview, Farrow stated that the turn in his relationship with Clinton was affected by his investigation into Weinstein's sexual misconduct allegations. Weinstein was reported to be a Democratic supporter and donor of Clinton. "It's remarkable how quickly even people with...

    Actress and activist Mia Farrow reacted to President Trump’s move to criminalize animal cruelty on Tuesday by resurfacing a photo of his eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, posing with a dead leopard as part of a hunt in Zimbabwe that took place nearly a decade ago. The president on Tuesday signed H.R. 724, otherwise known as the Protect Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT). It criminalizes animal torture, specifically “crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating and impaling live animals, and other abuses such as sexually exploiting them,” according to the Humane Society.

    One of the many news-making revelations in Ronan Farrow’s upcoming book, Catch and Kill, is that he received pressure from Hillary Clinton to back off his reporting on Harvey Weinstein. In summer 2017, while Farrow was trying to lock down an interview with Clinton for his foreign policy book — while also still working on the Weinstein story — he received a call from Clinton’s publicist, Nick Merrill, who told him that the “big story” Farrow was working on was a “concern for us.”

    You might remember back in May 2018 when sketchy porn lawyer Michael Avenetti was releasing U.S. Treasury notifications on Michael Cohen received from an unknown source within the Treasury Department. You might also remember when New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow wrote a sympathetic article after talking to the leaking treasury official. As a result the Treasury Inspector General began an investigation. Today, a U.S. Treasury employee named Natalie Mayflower Sours-Edwards was arrested and charged with leaking to numerous reporters multiple financial reports about suspicious financial transactions related to: Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Maria Butina, and others.
  • Ronan Farrow’s Kavanaugh story causes media meltdown

    09/24/2018 6:28:13 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 30 replies
    New Yorker writers Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer pushed back Monday against the New York Times’ coverage of the latest sexual-misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. ** The paper said it interviewed “several dozen people” in a vain attempt to find someone with “firsthand knowledge” to corroborate Ramirez’s allegations. The Times also said Ramirez contacted former classmates to see if they remembered the alleged incident — and told some she wasn’t sure it was Kavanaugh who exposed himself. But in a Twitter post Monday, Farrow said it was “not accurate” for a Washington Post columnist to have tweeted...

    New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer said Monday that word of an alleged sexual assault committed by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh while he was in college spread to the Senate and the media before the magazine reached out to his accuser. “She didn’t come forward with it,” Mayer said NBC’s “Today” show. “What happened was, the classmates at Yale were talking to each other about it, they were emailing about it. We’ve seen the emails, back in July before Christine Blasey Ford came forward, and eventually the word of it spread," Mayer added, referring to the woman who earlier this...
  • New Yorker Publishes Account From Second Brett Kavanaugh Accuser

    Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer have released a report in the New Yorker from a second woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct — and this time it includes a dildo. The 53-year-old accuser Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that she was initially hesitant to speak out because she was drunk at the time and her memory had gaps. She spent six days “carefully assessing her memories” and consulting with her attorney before going public. Ramirez said that, when both she and Kavanaugh were freshmen at Yale, she was invited by a friend on the women’s soccer team to...

    Hot Air ^ | September 14, 2018
    Congratulations to Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, I guess. No, no, wait. The offense alleged here is serious, much more than Kavanaugh and a pal locking a female classmate in a room or whatever, as was claimed yesterday. And Farrow’s track record (he co-wrote the piece with Obama apologist Jane Mayer) will lend it a patina of credibility to readers. But the evidence is thin as can be. The woman, who has asked not to be identified, first approached Democratic lawmakers in July, shortly after Trump nominated Kavanaugh. The allegation dates back to the early nineteen-eighties, when Kavanaugh was...

    "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager is leaving CBS News "effective immediately" amid allegations of inappropriate behavior, the company announced on Wednesday. "Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program," CBS News president David Rhodes said in a statement. A New Yorker article in August implicated Fager, along with former CBS CEO Les Moonves, in a series of allegations of sexual misconduct at the company. Moonves stepped down from his position earlier this week.

    The exec had been at CBS News for 36 years and has been a leading figure at the news division for decades. The tenure of Jeff Fager as the executive producer of 60 Minutes is over. "Jeff Fager is leaving the company effective immediately," read a statement from CBS News president David Rhodes on Wednesday. "Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program. 60 Minutes is the most significant news broadcast on television." Rhodes added: "We are fortunate to have incredibly talented journalists in...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | September 2, 2018 | Alexandra Spring and Steph Harmon
    “To be brave, you have to know so you can act.” They were South African author Sisonke Msimang’s words but could well have been the theme for this past weekend’s Antidote, a festival of ideas which focused on solutions that saw Chelsea Manning, Ronan Farrow, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maureen Dowd, Msimang and more speaking out on the Sydney Opera House stages. The event was almost overshadowed by the home affairs department’s decision to issue a notice of intention to deny Manning an entry visa on character grounds last week. But her talk went ahead regardless: Manning video-called in from Los Angeles...

    The producer who worked alongside Ronan Farrow at NBC News on his Harvey Weinstein investigation quit in protest earlier this month. Rich McHugh tendered his resignation on Friday, Aug. 17, a year to the day that the Weinstein story left with Farrow. Since then, Farrow has won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles that revealed allegations of sexual harassment and assault—and questions have lingered about why the network gave up on the story that helped launch the #MeToo movement. NBC News has long insisted the Weinstein exposé wasn’t ready to run on air or online, contrary to Farrow’s...

    On Thursday’s NBC Today, correspondent Ronan Farrow devoted a five-minute report to promoting liberal claims of Republicans trying to suppress Democratic voter turnout on election day by targeting minority groups with voter ID laws. Farrow warned: “According to one recent survey, one in five voters lives in a state that requires photo ID to vote but don’t know it....a wave of new laws making it tougher than ever just to cast a ballot.” He highlighted one victim of the policy: “Charda Hanamadas lives in Wisconsin. She's a mother of three and a public schoolteacher. And this year she was told...

    Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who lied on his exit forms and brought Ebola to the United States, died today. It took less than half a day for his family to come out and blame racism for Duncan’s death. Jesse Jackson entered the earlier this week. Today, Duncan’s nephew Josephus Weeks appeared on MSNBC with Ronan Farrow. Weeks clearly blamed the care that his uncle received on race. Farrow interviewed Weeks before Duncan had even died, on Monday, but Jackson had already become part of the story by then. Farrow asked Weeks whether he believed that discrimination played a...

    The back-and-forth volleys among the Woody Allen and Mia Farrow families continue as Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has released a statement responding to Allen’s piece published Friday online in the New York Times Sunday review section according to Variety. In the Woody Allen Speaks Out article, he defended himself against Dylan Farrow’s post published last Saturday in the New York Times alleging that Allen had molested her at the age of 7. Dylan Farrow’s response sent Friday night read as follows: Once again, Woody Allen is attacking me and my family in an effort to discredit and silence me...

    Mia Farrow and Ronan Farrow didn't hold back their disdain for Woody Allen on Twitter Sunday evening. The mother and son tweeted out against the tribute to the director at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. "Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS," Mia tweeted when Allen's tribute began to start. Diane Keaton accepted the Cecil. B. DeMille Award on behalf of the Hollywood heavyweight—extolling the director's work with actresses, dropping a few curse words and even singing during her monologue. But Ronan's tweet made it clear that he wouldn't be offering any tributes at his house....
